Parable of a Father's dilemma


A non-Muslim man came home from work and his children ran to him and called out “Ayah! Ayah!”

His Muslim neighbour got very upset and said to him, “Can you please tell your children not to call you ‘Ayah’?”

The man asked, “Why?”

The neighbor retorted, “Because my children call me ’Ayah’ too. They might get confused and mistake you to be their father or even to the extent that you were once upon a time having an affair that brought them to this world .”

The man was shock, "But that's not possible as I just moved in as your neighbour last month?"

The neighbour replied: "Well, your children can call you father, or Ah Pa but not Ayah."

Thereafter, it was unknown as to the issue.

I think I know what goes after that, here it goes:

So the man said: " If that's the case, I'll use waalid, which is father in Arabic. Yeah, my kids gonna like it"

Hearing that the neighbour replied: " Oh! I didnt know you're an Arab"

The man angrily said:" What arab? Can't you see my skin, does it look like arab's?!!"

"Well, if that's the case, and you dont want people to confuse you with something else, better you use your mother tongue. Hell, I will let your kids call you Ayah!" finally the neighbour relented.

You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may commense earning with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

non muslim? i think non malay is more accurate.

so this non malay father came back to his house and greeted by children with ayah ayah. His neighbour overheard and came running to his house, So your children address you as Ayah. So the man replied, exactly, as I am a Malaysian and eventhough I am not a Malay, it is my duty to use this national language properly as my mark of respect to the language.
His neighbour, Mr Accappan was pretty impressed. Good for you and they both live happily ever after.
